that card is a rookie reprint from a 1990's parkhurst insert set.
read the label.LOL boy there are some real suckers still on ebay. over $100 for a 1992-93 insert,the guy must have thought he got a great deal. LOL
****Rather misleading title if you ask me *****
Item was listed as a 1953-54 Parkie Jean Beliveau RP Rookie KSA 9.5
when it should have been listed as a 92-93 Parkie Beliveau. Not to mention it was listed under the pre 1980 category.
He's got a 92-93 OPC Patrick Roy Rookie Anniversary Card
listed as a 1986-87 OPC Rookie as well...........
Both items violate ebays TOS rules (under misleading deceptive titles) Seller knew exactly what he was doing.
I'm pretty sure the buyer got fooled, and just read the title ~ it's pretty easy to miss the "RP" in the title when cruising the pre 1980 categories ~ especially if you've had a couple of pops under the belt.
I smell a paypal claim and/or a well deserved negative coming.
Joe it is misleading BUT anyone willing to pay $100+ on a card should know what RP means, Also in the description of the card inside the auction it says REPRINT in big letters, and lastly on the scan it says Rookie Reprint on the label. This buyer had 3 chances, 3 strikes and now hes out of money.
Andrew .... TOTALLY AGREE, the buyer assumes the responsibility of knowing what he's buying .......
It's just that in this day and age, where time is money (and i've done it myself) you BID and read the fine print later. Unfortunately sometimes the fine print later part ~~~ comes after the auction has ended.
Sellers know this ...... and hope to catch someone sleeping at the wheel, otherwise why the deception??
Check out the dudes last negative, obviously he's learned nothing!!
yes, the buyer assumes the responsibility ... but in this particular case the buyer is French Canadian with poor English and could easily misunderstand the "RP" thing, so I would rather help than laugh at him.
Honestly, sometimes I don't know what to think of how this "hobby" has evolved. By the way, the truth in the auction above resides in the LOA, not in the PSA holder. Notice how the Gretzky signature conveniently goes right over the place where the printers mark should be?
No, it's just that the card is not labeled as a reprint by the "PSA holder" and one of the telltale signs of a Gretzky fake is the lack of a print dot on his left shoulder. I think the photo and the text lead people to believe the card is authentic and it isn't, as per the fine print of the LOA.
Just another example of buyer beware.
